Saving Magnified Images

When I magnify an image during review, can I save the magnified image? The camera is an EOS 60D.

Hi Yirga!

 

So that the Community can help you better, we will need to know exactly what Computer Operating System you're using (Windows XP/Vista/7/8 or Mac 10.x).  Any error messages or other details you'd like to give will only help the Community better understand your issue.  We look forward to hearing back from you!

I assume you're referring to reviewing it in-camera and zooming in to look at details.  No, I do not believe there is a way to save just that cropped image.  But just about any photo-software would do that for you in post process.

You want to save the entire image and do your cropping & editing on a nice big computer screen. Editing a shot on a little camera LCD screen would be like trying to solve a "Where's Waldo" printed on a postage stamp.

Canon DSLR cameras come with a free post-processing editing software (DPP), or you can buy a copy of easy-to-learn Lightroom 5 which is money very very well spent.

Why do so many people say "FER-tographer"? Do they take "fertographs"?

Thanks. Your suggestion makes a lot of sense.

I think you can crop on the camera and save it as another image. I don't have a 60D to test out. But when you preview the image and press the Q key, it should give you a list of option. But like others said, it's best to be done on a computer.

Thanks. I'll check out this possible solution.

I do have a 60D (well... 60Da, but basically the same except for the filter).  The Q menu gives you lots of options, but nothing for cropping.

 

The only way to crop in is to do it on the computer -- where it's much easier to control anyway.

I think you may not be able to save the magnified image on camera. Generally, we magnify or crop a photo and save it to a new image on computers.
